I want to use “calmato,” “Dolce” and other techniques which do not appear in the playing techniques popover or Dynamics popover. How do I input some of these things which don’t appear as a valid option in those popovers? I want to write piano solos and use the many varied options which appear in piano music. I thought I could do “everything” in Dorico, but I can’t put a lot of such things in the music. Steinberg US Support suggested I post here when they said that there is no way to do this.
You can write them as suffixes in the dynamics popover and then hide the dynamic. I prefer this method.
You can write them as text, italicized.
You can also create a custom playing technique if you’re using these often.
